Investigators determined the shooting took place outside 372 Mulberry St. where 14 shell casings were found. Vehicles parked in the area were also struck by gunfire.

Police located two residents of the home and took them into custody.

Joshua Burgos, 21, and Elvis Burgos, 40, were both charged with armed assault with intent to murder and discharge of a firearm within 500 feet of a building.

It’s unclear at this time if the suspects and victims knew each other.

Police said the investigation is ongoing. On Wednesday, officers executed a search warrant at the suspects’ home and were seen removing evidence.
